Adasi was an Assyrian king, the last in a line of 7 kings designated by the Assyrian King List as usurpers of the Assyrian throne, who reigned from 1720 - 1701 BC after the ejection of the Amorite-ruled Babylonians from Assyria. He is credited in the Assyrian King List with stabilising Assyria and freeing it from civil war and Amorite influence.[1] The Adaside dynasty of Assyria was named after him. He was succeeded by Bel-bani.
